The Boulder Mall also vied for the best display of tulips as these colorful flowers crowded the flower boxes in this traffic-free shopping and dining area. Last weekend the mall was jumping with activity. In the open-air market a wide array of vendors were selling almost any and every thing one could imagine. Street performers entertained the shoppers as they pantomimed, sang, danced and juggled to everybody’s delight.
We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather. After a light snow fall at the beginning of the week, as each day passed it grew warmer. Big fluffy clouds skimmed the tops of these famed mountains. Yes, we were experiencing a Rocky Mountain high of pure beauty.
Pink, in many shades, was spotlighted at the Wellness Community-Foothills annual Angel Gala held recently at the Pasadena Convention Center. The benefit, co-chaired by La Cañada Flintridge resident Lydia Valenta and Ginger Rouse, was themed “A Black, White and Pink Affair” and netted $115,000.
Beverly Rouse, director of TWC-Foothills, was extremely pleased to introduce the honorees of the evening, Dennis and Carolyn Lee of Pasadena and the Los Angeles County University of Southern California Medical Center for their contributions to the organization and the community.
The 300-plus guests were greeted by “Curly the Butler” (not a real guy) as they entered the foyer to bid on a grand selection of silent auction items ranging from VIP passes to a taping of “Chelsea Lately” to an autographed CSI television show script, to Santa Barbara sky diving. There were also many auction opportunities to dine, wine tasting and lovely fine jewelry.
